a short-lived truce? Why reconciliation is not on the agenda
They talk to each other again, but are the two brothers Harry and William ready to reconcile for good?
The image made the rounds of the popular media. Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton walking side by side. For a moment, it looks like the tensions between the two couples have evaporated. But what is it really? As a reminder, William and Harry have barely spoken in the past two years. Indeed, the two brothers have been cold for a long time. However, they have always been very tight-knit. The death of Princess Diana, their mother, when they were only young teenagers also brought them much closer. It was finally the departure of Harry and Meghan Markle from the royal family that will break this very strong bond between the two brothers.
Since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step down from their royal roles, the rift has deepened between them and the now Prince and Princess of Wales. But the death of their grandmother seems to have brought them closer again. The two couples went to meet the British people who came in large numbers. For long minutes, they accepted the condolences of the latter and the bouquet of flowers offered for the occasion. Images reminiscent of those broadcast a while ago 25 years after the death of the People’s Princess, Lady Di.
Harry and William: too deep a fracture?
The two brothers and their wives therefore appeared very close this week in London. But Harry and William are they really reconciled? Or is it simply a truce following the death of Queen Elizabeth II? It must be said that the questions intrigue many media. So much so that the photos of the two couples eclipsed the first speech of King Charles III. According to the Daily Mail, the initiative for this rapprochement would come from Prince William. But that means that Harry still accepted this truce. Moreover, we know that their grandmother, the sovereign who died on September 8, wanted to see them finally reconciled. Maybe his two grandsons decided to this truce in homage to their grandmother. But all of this remains rather vague, since prince Harry was excluded from the last hours of his grandmother and the first ones that followed her death. “Two dinner parties were being held on the royal estate that evening and there was a clear divide: one was for the new king and his heir, the other was for the rest of the family” explains a relative of the royal family. And not surprisingly, each brother was in a clan. King Charles III for his part, held, during his speech, to express his love for Harry and his wife. Perhaps a way to welcome them back into the family circle.
